Family Favorites...Double Quick Dinner Rolls

This recipe from Betty Crocker Perfect Baking Every Time is a keeper - quick, unfussy - hot homemade yeast rolls with a nice texture and taste for only 54¢ a dozen.  I wouldn’t change a thing!  I think this would be an excellent recipe for anyone who hasn’t tried yeast baking yet. 
I liked the fact that I only had to scoop the batter into muffin cups instead of getting out a cutting board and shaping the rolls.  It makes them much easier if you are making them in a hurry - less fuss and cleanup too.  I used my Kitchenaid for the initial mixing and rising, and my muffin scoop to portion the batter.

  1        Cup  Water -- 120-130°
  2        Tablespoons  Shortening or butter

Mix 1 1/4 cups of flour, the sugar, salt and yeast in a large bowl. Add the water, shortening and egg; beat until smooth.  Stir in remaining flour until smooth.  Scrape batter from sides of bowl.

  1. This recipe looks like a good one. I have been using a recipe that is easy enough but the rolls seem to dry out rather quickly. I think the addition of
    The egg will help keep these moist and make them richer tasting. My kitchen aid mixer died last night : ( and this recipe looks like it would be easy to make by hand until I can get a new mixer. We make virtually all of our own breads and rolls.

    1. Hi, Tracy..
      We often freeze the extras of these and heat them in the microwave 20-30 seconds before serving...great to have on hand on a busy day.
      I think you'll like them. I never, ever buy bread either!
